Zona Hobby has a pre-order for MP Grimlock with new images showing his detail, articulation, accessories and size. It is said that this figure will be around the same size as the MP Starscream mold. Actually disregard that as it looks a lot more like being as tall as MP Prime.

Accessories include:
Crown
Drinks tray
Energon sword
IQ- swapping device
Blaster

That mind-swapping device is serious funny.

In the thread on TFW2005 some tried making the argument of the jet mode, but it seems like it was just wishful thinking. With the pics here, seems pretty apparent that we're talking seeker bot mode size.

Also, unless the thing were like 90% die-cast, I have no idea how the listed shipping weight on BBTS of 7 lbs could be accurate...

That is disappointing...at least considering the price tag.


That is very disappointing. :sad:
Hopefully at least this means his price and shipping weight will come down (best silver lining I can think of....)

The text says he is 30 cm high in robot mode, which is the exact height of MP Optimus.

Hmmm... the smaller size might bring him more in line with Classics Prime.

If the price comes down, this might make it onto my Christmas list for 2009.

I want him quite a lot, but there's simply a limit to how much I can justify spending on a single Transformer. Otherwise I would have gotten that nearly mint Trypticon I found in St. Louis three years ago.

Excelent! Can't wait for it! BTW, he seems to be seated in the picture of the IQ-swaping device. Anyway, I hope it is the size of MP Optimus Prime. Smaller is a bit uncooler, but bigger than that will be a problem for me...

Hopefully that will be the case...that wouldn't be so bad.

If I had a G1 Grimlock and Optimus this would be easier, but I've been trying to figure out the rough proportions here.
If G1 Optimus is about 6 inches tall (which I read that he is), then the sitting MP Grimlock is about 7-8 inches tall.
If we stand Grimlock up, that should make him 9-10 inches tall, right?

Now this is guesswork from online pics here, but it looks like G1 Grimlock was about 1.25 times taller in bot mode than rex mode.

So in bot mode, MP Grimlock would (hopefully) be 1.25 to 1.33 times larger than in alt mode.
This would make him between 11 and 13 inches tall in bot mode.
So 12" is probably a safe bet, I guess.

How's that for random pseudo-algebra? Lol...

On the brighter side, though, that's about how tall MP Prime is.
So Grimlock might be able to look him in the eye. :D

All this arguing about size is killing me... let's put it to rest.

Grimlock is sitting in that picture. If you can't see it ... look again. His foot makes it obvious.

Look at the size of Grim's head. It's just about the same size of Prime entire cab, width-wise. Look at the brain helmet, as that will easily fit over Prime's head.

So that would indicate that his head is roughly about 2.5"-3" long. Looking at him, he's about 4 heads high. This would make him about 10-12" tall ... which puts him exactly at the reported 30cm.

I can definitely live with that. I would prefer a bigger bot, but he should at least be the same size....

I hope this is one of the MP's that Hasbro wants to do for 25th anni. He'd be way cheaper to pick up for those of us in the U.S.

It'd be nice if they gave us a deal like they did with MP Starscream.
Okay, maybe not a repaint, but the same half-price cost. :mrgreen:

The heck, waiter mode? Such weird accessories, I love it! :lol:

I like how his little dino arms are actually articulated too. Awesome. I want this guy more and more! :D
Re: More pics of MP Grimlock from Zona Hobby (825165)

Speaking of articulation, would anyone care to speculate how good Grimlock's poseability will be?
Judging from the few pictures we've seen thus far, it looks like both bot mode and dino mode have a decent range of motion.
The bot mode legs alone are enough to give me hope.

So will we get a super-poseable MP like Prime?
Or will we get a not-so-poseable MP like Megatron and Starscream?

They must be joking.... That's a G1 Optimus Prime... This means he is at least at the same size of MP Starscream. All that money for sutch a small Masterpiece. :shock:
